Mr. Butter is a dairy product made by churning cream or milk. It is generally used as a spread and a condiment, as well as in baking & pan frying. Butter consists of butterfat, water and milk proteins.

Butter, as an animal fat, contains both saturated fats and cholesterol – the two dietary ingredients that increase blood cholesterol. Cholesterol in foods, on the other hand, has little effect on blood cholesterol in most people - claims a survey!!!
